Cue the ensuing panic as you try to locate your other nearest Maccies, cursing that nefarious clown Ronald for running out of that deliciously sugary pud-pud. It’s such a gut-wrenching feeling; the initial excitement of ordering a McDonald’s instantly cancelled out by the news that there’ll be no ice-cream for afters.
Curse your unreliable machines.
Now, I don’t want to get all political in what should be a light-hearted article, but if anyone says that the Oreo McFlurry isn’t at the top of the McFlurry pyramid they’re either lying, in denial, or their tastebuds leave a lot to be desired.
Until now, I didn’t think it could be beaten – nope, not even the Malteser Reindeer one comes close – but I fear its crown is in a precarious position.
They’re bringing out a chuffin’ Galaxy Caramel one!
Presumably to celebrate the upcoming festive season – one synonymous with scoffing your face with choccy – Maccies are releasing this new delight next week (25th September to be exact).
The indulgent ice cream combines pieces of creamy Galaxy chocolate with a swirl of caramel sauce, all mixed into the brand’s statement soft serve ice cream. This delectable dessert will set you back 99p for a mini and £1.39 for the regular size, which begs the question why they don’t do a large.
Just get two regulars I suppose.
Sadly, it will only be available for a limited time – as all good things at McDonald’s seem to be. Why is their Double Quarter Pounder limited edition? There’s no doubt it should replace the normal one, what with its pathetic one-patty offering.
How am I supposed to go back to that now?
Fans will be able to get their hands on the treat for just eight weeks, no doubt ending as a new festive flavour arrives in November. Probably the Malteser Reindeer one to be fair…
Now, I could talk about their recent Spicy McChicken Nuggets (overrated) or the fast-food superpower’s extended breakfast hours, but why would I, when instead, I can chat about these hilariously rude new cups.
Maccies restaurants in Japan recently released a trio of new fizzy ice drinks; they’re pretty popular, coming in Lemon Ginger, Blood Orange, and everyone’s favourite flavour, Blue Hawaii, but it’s not necessarily the taste that has everyone talking.
No, it’s the new cups.
What about the cups? Well they’re just more single-use plastic so it could be that – but isn’t – and they have a pretty cool aesthetic, but it’s the hidden third option that’s causing a stir.
You see, when placed within one-another, these cups can create either cute images or unintentionally dirty ones with the drawings printed on them.
Have a look…
NSFW #content right there.
Anyway, what are you waiting for – those Galaxy Salted Caramel McFlurries aren’t going to eat themselves.
I would try and order one but there’s no chance Greenwich’s McFlurry machine is working. I’ve put my faith in them too many times in the past only to be painfully let down at the last minute.
You give and you give but you get nothing back.
